Our 4th Anniversary and Roger's Phlebotomy Graduation Party

Yesterday, April 30, was Roger and my 4th Anniversary. We had a fun day! He surprised me when he came home from his first class with roses and gerber daisies ((pictured below.) I love how the temple where we were sealed is right behind it). I was excited and then while he was in his next class Karissa helped me with the kids and we went to Walmart and got him the Call of Duty game for his xbox 360. He loved it. I guess it wasn't the exact one that he wanted but it is the same one that his friends have so he can at least play people he knows online with it. He was super surprised because he had no clue. He had a lab for his A&P class that night so we waited until he got home to head out to town. We went to Twigs for dinner. We hadn't been there before so we decided to try it out. He got a chicken teriyaki pita and I got a oriental chicken salad but we traded half way through because we both liked the others as well. It was a yummy place. They have three restaurants in the Spokane area so if you are in Spokane and want a new place to try you should go there. We were done eating at 10pm and we had two hours until the new X-men Origins movie came out so we decided to camp out in the theater and wait since nothing else was open. It was funny because so many people were in there the whole time and talking about the comic book club they have and how we all knew what they were talking about because we were all NERDS. Lol...too funny because I've never read a comic in my life! I love the movies though!! It was cool. About an hour before the movie started people had blown up beach balls throwing them all around. Roger was fun to watch during that because he had his arms out trying to block them the whole time so I wouldn't get smashed in the face! He's so sweet! I could defend myself pretty well though. I think he was impressed by my quick reflexes. Karissa watched our kids and we were so happy to get to enjoy such a cool day together. It's funny cause the day we got married we went to Spokane, to stay in the Davenport hotel (fabulous, gorgeous hotel) since we only had like two night before Roger had to be back to class at Big Bend, and ate downtown and went to a movie in that same theater. (We wouldn't have endeavored out of our room if I hadn't been on my monthly. Yes women I started my monthly the morning we got married. I was in tears quite a bit that day about it) Roger finished his Phlebotomy classes and the last day they had a party to celebrate. This is our family together at the party. My mom, sister, Karissa, Chris, and Antonio came to support him. My dad couldn't make it because he had a work meeting in Tri-Cities. We are all so proud of him. It was a tough ten weeks, but we made it through and it'll help him in the long run. He loves the medical field. It was cool because his instructor said they were the best class he's ever taught. They all finished with A's and none of them had any complaints from their clinical setting jobs which was impressive. Roger got an awesome letter of recommendation from the lady who taught him things at the Rockwood lab in Cheney. She said she doesn't give out letters of recommendation to anyone, but was insistant on giving one to Roger because she was so impressed with his work. Good job babe!! You are the best!

Man my babies are getting big....

Happy anniversary! I can't believe it's been FOUR YEARS, and I'm still upset that I couldn't go to your wedding OR reception. Yes, that's right, STILL butt hurt that you couldn't wait for me to get back from China!
